OnePlus has been massively teasing its upcoming affordable smartphone in India. While there were many rumours of the device being called the OnePlus Z, and some also believed it to be the OnePlus 8 Lite, on Tuesday, OnePlus went ahead and confirmed that the device will, in fact, be called the OnePlus Nord.
OnePlus created a dedicated website, an Instagram page, and a Twitter profile for the new smartphone series.
The company has also confirmed so far that the smartphone will be launched in the month of July. A date? We don’t have that yet. But some reports suggest that it could be launched on 10 July.
Meanwhile, ahead of a solid date of launch, in a post on Tuesday, OnePlus teased a “pre-order drop” for the OnePlus Nord today (1 July).
In another Instagram story, OnePlus has announced that it’s “first limited pre-order will begin” at 2.30 pm IST today on Amazon India and the OnePlus Nord website.
